Mothers

Mothers Day is coming up in a few short weeks (May 10th, to be exact, so consider this your reminder), but rather than posting something then, I decided to post today because, well, I'm reading Little Women (yes, it won out for A Book To Read--I love it so much), and this absolutely perfect quote was in the very first chapter:
"She wasn't a particularly handsome person, but mothers are always lovely to their children, and the girls thought the gray cloak and unfashionable bonnet covered the most splendid woman in the world."
From chapter 1 ("Playing Pilgrims") on page 17.

And isn't it just the truth? My mother is the loveliest and the best. I love you, Mom!
